i have a client who has an enormous house, with solid brick walls and concrete florrs who would like a strong wireless signal from his Linksys adsl modem / router all over the house...(i want a ferrari, but hey - i know how real life goes...)
I am looking into ways of improving his signal and seeing as he already has a linksys wireless router, a linksys wireless print server - this eems the ideal solution, but i have never used one before - have you ?
or have you any suggestions ?
(killing him is not an option - he pays my wages)
You may need to install remote antennas in each room.
They attach to one of their wireless switches.
We have something like this in the offices at work. I don't know how it works, though I can ask for you. This antenna here looks a lot like the ones at work.
Be for warned, it may not be cheap.
Hello hawaiianwizard my advice is to try and use "wireless bridging". You can connect different AP's in order to extend and improve the signal. From my own experience this can be done using Linksys routers, previously I used the WRT54GL (love Linux) with Tomato, you can buy an extra router and try it. I believe the default firmware supports wireless bridging.

Thanks for all the response, looks like we got it under control now.
